Runner's knee is one of the most common injuries for endurance athletes today. Through extensive research and development, Rehband has created the UD Runner's knee/ITBS Tights, a unique pair of tights that provide injury prevention and rehabilitation. This product is the first of its kind, designed to help prevent the development of runner’s knee, with a medical classification to back it up.

The tights are made of recycled high-class polyamide and perforated neoprene panels that extend over the hip and knee joints. The neoprene panels provide targeted warmth and compression to the areas associated with runner’s knee. This results in pain relief and prevention against recurring injuries. The tights can also improve the everyday athlete’s performance and coordination through proprioception properties, and the user will also experience the overall benefits of graded compression, increased blood circulation, coordination, and reduced swelling.

Apart from their medical function and slim look, the Runner’s Knee/ITBS Tights include features such as flat-lock stitching, a breathable stretch material for perfect comfort, and reflective elements. The reflectors are designed in the same shape as the perforated holes for a complete visual balance in both light and dark. An ideal tight for marathons, long runs, training, and any athlete conscious of injury prevention.

Functions & Benefits:
• Gives support, compression, and warmth
• Relieves soft tissue irritation and swelling
• Improves muscle coordination in the hip and leg area
• Alleviates Runner's knee (ITBS syndrome)
• Relieves retropatellar pain
• For your safety, we have included reflective details on the backside for increased visibility
• The thicker neoprene material should bilaterally cover the outside area of the thigh and surrounding the knees
• Women’s cut

Indications:
• Pain, swelling, and soft tissue irritation caused by muscle strain or injuries
• Runner’s Knee (ITBS syndrome)

UD Runner's Knee/ITBS Tights - Women Functionality

The key functions of Rehband’s supports are warmth, compression and a strengthening of the receptive input. These create a unique composition which together prevent injuries, enhance performance and ease rehabilitation of injuries. You will experience several result, specific to each product.
  • Coordination

    Coordination

    Coordination

    Coordination can be described as the interaction between the nervous system and the muscle system. It is an interaction of particular groups of muscles with the aim to create useful bodily responses needed for and optimal and desired performance.

    The compression and receptive input from the anatomical construction in Rehband products enable a higher level of muscle coordination. The perfect fit of these designs operate at maximum effectiveness in a complete range of motion and increase the quality of movements. You are less likely to sustain injury to your limbs when coordination is improved, for example while wearing Rehband products.

  • Injury prevention

    Injury prevention

    Injury prevention

    Injury prevention is central to living an active life. Injury prevention and activity should go hand-in-hand. Prevention not only includes wearing the right type of preventative gear suited for an active lifestyle, but may also include recovery in-between sets, warm-up and warm-down, stretching, staggering of frequency and dose of exercise, healthy eating, etc.

    Physical activity could very well be our cheapest remedy. Unsurprisingly, a vast amount of research shows that a high rate of physical activity improves the overall health and well-being of populations. In connection to activity, more or less severe injuries may occur, injuries which are often related to overuse. To prevent the probability of any injury occurring, but also to speed-up recovery if it happens, protective supports are of value. Preventative equipment is made for a reason, to prevent initial and recurring injuries. Rehband products are designed to reduce swelling, to protect the user from friction and hits, and to simultaneously provide increased stability and support to joints and muscles.

  • Performance

    Performance

    Performance

    Regardless the sport, activity or level - active people strive to reach better performance or to remain at a certain desired level. The combined functions of warmth, compression and strengthened receptive input result in a wide range of benefits such as coordination, improved balance, increased blood circulation. The combined results can increase performance in the chosen activity. The athlete is given the tools to reach new levels, new goals and undertake new challenges.

    Good performance depends on many different factors, such as sleep, diet, level of repetition and mindset. Improved technique, achieved by the improved coordination, balance, feeling of safety and proprioception, which the user receives from Rehband supports, is another factor which might improve performance. Regardless if one wears Rehband supports to to prevent injuries, boost confidence or rehabilitate an injury - the overall performance can be enhanced.

  • Save energy

    Save energy

    Save energy

    When the benefits of Rehband’s compression and increased receptive input are combined, energy is saved because movement is more efficient. Correct technique and energy efficiency play an important role for the success of any athletic performance. When jogging or running, the repetitive impact that occurs when your feet hit the pavement can stress joints and muscles. When wearing a Rehband support, some of this vibrational energy will get softened, resulting in less impact on the body, which can benefit tired and sore muscles and help prevent injury. This, in combination with the compression from Rehband supports reduces muscle oscillation and contributes to increased performance.

    Injuries tend to occur towards the end of a physical activity. When muscles are tired and focus is lowered, the head does not read the body as well anymore. As the usage of Rehband supports saves energy and allows you to stay more focused, prevention of injuries is achieved and a high performance can be maintained throughout the entire activity.

  • Warm-up

    Warm-up

    Warm-up

    Warm-up is described as low-intensity work where larger muscle groups are activated with the aim of preparing the body for an activity with high intensity. There is a reason why it is called ‘warm-up’, since it serves to raise body temperature which leads to positive body tissue changes. Increased muscle temperature results in preparedness for a strenuous activity, increases oxygen levels to muscles in use, improves the movement of the joints and minimizes the likelihood of strains. Additionally, warm-ups prepare the athletes psychologically to focus on the upcoming intensive activity, whether it is a competitive game or another endeavour.

    The benefits of Rehband products aid in giving you a faster warm-up and also to retain the temperature gained. Furthermore, the receptive input gained from Rehband products helps the user to become more aware of the body’s motion which results in a more efficient warm-up.
